DOG AT THE WEDDING! DO YOU KNOW ALL THE PROS AND CONS?

DOG AT THE WEDDING! DO YOU KNOW ALL THE PROS AND CONS?

Most of us want to spend our wedding day with our family and friends. And so we logically think whether to "give" the imaginary wedding invitation to our best four-legged friend. If you are planning a wedding, consider all the pros and cons of spending your wedding day with your dog.

1. DOG'S VIEW

Every dog ​​is different, so it cannot be said with certainty that all dogs are trouble-free wedding guests. So try to empathize with your dog and find out if his personality matches the program of your wedding. Do you have a timid pet at home who is afraid of strangers? Then it makes no sense for him to bother among a hundred invited guests. Do you know that your dog constantly begs at the table and likes to jump on others? Admit that the wedding guests will not be twice as excited about his bad habit. Does your dog listen and can he relax even in a restless environment? Put him on the wedding guest list! Be honest with yourself and think about whether the nature of your dog goes hand in hand with the nature of the wedding. None of us wants a pet to be worried, stressed or out of sorts at a wedding.

2. UNBREAKABLE RULES

When making a decision, do not forget to consider whether dogs are allowed at the place of the ceremony and wedding reception. If, for example, you are getting married in a castle, it is very likely that there cannot be a four-legged friend among the wedding guests. On the contrary, many rustic farms or barns welcome dogs. Ideally, talk to the property owner about the presence of a pet and introduce him to your canine friend.

3. FOCUSED ON DANGER

Even if we don't want to paint the devil on the wall, it is definitely worth it when you consider whether the chosen wedding location is not dangerous for the dog in any way. Are there poisonous plants outside, a hole in the fence, or an open pond that the dog could fall into? In the same way, think about whether the dog will reach, for example, the catering table, which will undoubtedly have dangerous chocolate treats on it. And last but not least, consider whether there is anyone among the guests who could, albeit unintentionally, harm the dog. We mean, for example, "pranksters" who would give the dog a taste of alcohol.

4. TALK TO THE GUESTS

We understand that you adore your dog above all else, but don't forget that there are people who don't share your positive opinion about dogs. Some have a panic fear of dogs, others struggle with an allergy to dog hair. And then there are those who simply do not need a dog. Either way, talk to your guests ahead of time to see if they'll be comfortable with the presence of a dog. Thanks to this timely conversation, you will avoid possible problems at the wedding itself.

5. THINK OF YOURSELF

And last but not least, don't forget that the wedding day is only about you and your partner. It's a day you should enjoy and enjoy to the last sip. If you know about yourself that you would constantly think about the present dog, stress about whether it is okay, and run away with thoughts only to him, maybe it will be better if you do not have company at the wedding. On the contrary, owners who know that the presence of a dog will calm them down and put a smile on their face, can give the dog a wedding invitation straight away.

6. "REPLACEMENT" MASTER

Have you decided that your dog must not be absent from the wedding? Then detailed planning is the key to success. Ideally, ask a close person to transform into a surrogate groom on the wedding day. It doesn't matter if you ask a sibling, parents or someone from the wedding party, the only important thing is that it is a person who is responsible and knows the dog well enough. This person will be responsible for the dog during the wedding and will make sure that nothing happens. Of course, it is important that you discuss the assigned task with the given person and be 100% sure that this assigned task does not bother them.

Do you have any experience with dogs at weddings?
